The Metaphysical Paul The entry for Paul in the Metaphysical Bible Dictionary says his name comes from Latin and means restrained, constrained; lessened; made small; little. There are three things we need to know in order to understand Paul, both historically Crossan: These are his mission, his strategy and his vision.
He holds everything together from the stars in the heavens to the cells in your body. He holds each day in His all-powerful hands. He never takes a vacation. He is always working out His will on earth.
Christ Jesus still holds the world and specifically your world together. He is always true to His word.
He always fulfills His promises. His love and care for His creation, and yes that means you, is unconditional because He can be nothing other than unconditional love. But the Lord is not just holding your life together.
The Bible is the only revelation of truth which is inspired, inerrant, and infallible. The Bible reveals every truth essential for life and godliness. It is not God’s truth (as revealed in Scripture), plus other “truth,” which we need to live godly lives; it is God’s truth alone. In Christian theology, revelation is the act of God communicating to man. There is no way that we can know any truth without God actively revealing it to us. “Because God is infinite, He cannot be fully comprehended by finite creatures. We are blinded to God’s truth by our sin. The _____ sense of Scripture recognizes that God's word is intended to lead us to live a good life, to act justly on behalf of God and other _____. For instance, the words of the _____ telling the Chosen People to obey God's Commandments also apply to us.
He has a great plan for your life. It does not matter what stage of life you are in—whether you are just beginning or you are closer to the end. The Lord is working all things together for good for you and for all His people.
There is no better life, there is no greater thing than to live according to the will of God. He prayed that they would know and live out the will of God. And more than that, we will find great joy and pleasure in doing them no matter what challenges and problems we face because anything we do outside the will of God is worthless—but whatever we do by the will of God is glorious.
Whatever makes it on your list is going to be something that is very important. The first thing I thought about was eating. Maybe for a period of time once in a while I will go without eating, but I consider eating to be an important part of my daily routine.
Sleeping makes the cut also. Telling my wife and kids that I love them is at the top of the list.
So is spending time with the Lord every day in His word and in prayer. However, very few things make it into my prayers unceasingly.Unleashing God’s Truth, One Verse at a Time.

So Paul besought God to impart to them the wisdom they needed.
Then Paul clarified that this kind of wisdom would only come to them by revelation — which only God can give. If you need direction and guidance today, stop right now and pray Paul’s prayer in Ephesians for your own life.

The apostle Paul encouraged us to "pray with the spirit and pray with the understanding also" (1 Corinthians ). My intent today is not to discredit the importance of our minds, but rather to clarify the fact that the primary level at which God communicates His truth to us is the spiritual level, not the intellectual one.
The wise believer looks for the spiritual . Praise God that He has given us His Word full of Truth from Genesis to Revelation—if only we will study it. Read Acts The Berean Jews are described as "of more noble character" than others Paul had encountered (v.
A Spirit of Wisdom And Revelation for You It is a fact that truths remain hidden until God chooses to reveal them to us. This is why Paul prayed for God “to give” the Ephesian church a spirit of wisdom and revelation.
I boldly declare that God gives me “a spirit of wisdom and revelation” regarding the truth I need in my life.
